Everybody???s taste is different nevertheless I was disappointed in this book. The main characters I found to be dull and typecast : ???Jack Menard??? a superman-with-a-disturbed-past type and ???Lorna Polk??? irritating and flat. Descriptions of weapons and military equipment where often inaccurate, their terminal effects like something out of a B grade movie. The plot was also a stretch of the imagination??? Unfortunately, I also must agree with other reviewers regarding the narration, the attempt at Cajun accents didn???t meet with much success, I would have to rate the narrator as ???painful at times???.
Only a three star rating here... the sound effects are superb, direct from the big screen (X-Wings, TIES, lightsabres, droids etc.). However... the characters voices just didn't always work (for me at least). I was the most disappointed in Solo and Leia. Star Wars was THE movie I grew up with, so maybe I am a little prejudiced - If you're a Star Wars fan, the best thing to do is to check for yourself !
With my apologies to Miss Christie and Mr. Lee - I can only truthfully rate this book with three stars. At the beginning the chapters are fresh and interesting, as the book progresses some themes repeat themselves, as does the style of narration. For full enjoyment, I would recommend splitting the book up along a longer time period, otherwise... boredom is lurking on the horizon :-(
I grew up in the U.K. whilst radio plays were still keeping their own against television... and games consoles didn't exist :-)This story is very good, although I didn't find the dramatization quite as pleasing as compared to other Sherlock Holmes books I've downloaded. However, still an entertaining few hours !
I grew up in the U.K. whilst radio plays were still keeping their own against television... and games consoles didn't exist :-) I really enjoyed the audio book as it brought back memories of tea and biscuits in the kitchen whilst listening to the radio. The stories are excellent, as is the dramatization. Highly recommended !
This book was included as a bonus with my sign-up... and it remains to date one of the best books I've downloaded ! The idea of all the differant authors was weird at first, buy the differances in writing style whilst keeping a storyline going really worked ! A little slow at the beginning, give yourself just a few chapters more... then you'll be hooked :-)
